of this special fiber and how to enjoy them every day. >> this year in the united states, over a million of us will have an operation on our heart or a technique called angioplasty, where we put a balloon and a stent in to open up our arteries and keep them open. these are revolutionary techniques, which can be life-saving for about half the people who have them, but for the other half, a combination of drugs, diet, exercise and a number of strategies that my article talks about that you can use at home, are your best chance of outliving heart disease. >> arthur, if so many angioplasties may be ill-advised, what on earth can you do? have you got anything in your black bag for clogged arteries? >> [laughs] you wouldn't believe it. >> maybe i wouldn't, but show me. >> well, let me explain. this new medicine contains a forgotten vitamin, a very special sub-type of vitamin k, tested off the charts in a recent study. people who got enough of it were 52% less likely to have severe calcification in their main arteries and they were 57% less likely to die of heart disease. >> that's significant, defin
